American music firebrand Jesse Dayton, who worked with Cash, will introduce the film. JOHNNY CASH AT FOLSOM PRISON explores the story around Johnny Cash’s seminal concert album, “At Folsom Prison.” Directed by Bestor Cram and based on writer Michael Streissguth’s acclaimed book Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison: The Making of a Masterpiece, the film weaves together compelling interviews with archival photography to evoke the spirit of that momentous day on Jan. 13, 1968 when Johnny Cash appeared on stage at Folsom Prison to re-imagine his destiny and change the course of popular music. Participants include: Rosanne Cash, band member Marty Stuart, former inmate Millard Dedmon, and relatives of inmate/singer Glen Sherley, who famously wrote “Greystone Chapel” for Cash.
